My friend and I are going to attempt to connect his apelco gsl 1100 gps
to a laptop
Seaclear says most pc 9 pin connector is pin 2 for recieve and 3 for transmit, and pin 5 for ground.
The apelco has an nmea 0183
output that has two wires, data (+) and data(-) I assume these are transmit + and recieve -
My plan is to connect pin 2 on the pc to the + wire and pin 3 on the pc to the - wire.
Has anyone else tried intefacing one of these older apelco units to a pc?
I only really need the transmit fromn the apelco to the pc, but without some kind ground wire I'm wondering if that will work
Thanks for any input
